C Spire Wireless Poll Reveals That a World Cruise is the Most Desired Adventure for C Spire Customers


Ridgeland, Miss. (November 18, 2011) – C Spire Wireless, the first and only provider to offer personalized wireless services, reminded customers and prospective customers today to enter the Personalized World Adventure Sweepstakes and earn the chance to win an all-expense paid, totally personalized once-in-a-lifetime experience for themselves and three friends or family members.


As the sweepstakes pushes past the halfway mark toward the grand prize announcement, more than 20,000 participants have registered and thousands have already won fantastic gifts.  In fact, 5,000 Amazon gift cards were claimed within the first three days of the sweepstakes and 17 individuals have won Motorola XOOM tablets since the Oct. 10 kickoff of the sweepstakes contest.


“Whether it’s climbing Mount Everest, diving in the Great Barrier Reef or even cruising around the world, C Spire is letting the winner design their own uniquely personalized once-in-a-lifetime experience and is picking up the tab,” said Kevin Hankins, chief operating officer for C Spire. 


In fact, according to a new poll conducted by C Spire Wireless, customers would most want to take a world cruise if they won the Personalized World Adventure Sweepstakes.  The poll also revealed that Dublin, Ireland would be the most desired destination to visit while on this ultimate adventure.


“With a grand prize like an adventure trip of a lifetime, as well as regular giveaways to participants, it’s no wonder we’ve seen more than 20,000 people want to be a part of such an exciting sweepstakes opportunity,” Hankins said.  “Just like people crave a completely personalized wireless experience that is customized uniquely to them, they also want their own unforgettable adventure designed around their life-long goals and interests.  One size fits all does not work with consumers today, which is why we’ve created this uniquely personalized sweepstakes contest.”


The sweepstakes contest runs through Dec. 4, 2011 giving customers and future customers another 17 days to enter the grand-prize sweepstakes and win other amazing prizes along the way.   Since the sweepstakes kickoff, C Spire has awarded a Motorola XOOM tablet to 17 participants and given away the 5,000 $10 Amazon® gift cards (in just the first three days of the sweepstakes).


Wireless users have a variety of easy and fun ways to enter C Spire’s Personalized World Adventure Sweepstakes and the more they interact with the brand, the more chances they get to win the adventure of a lifetime.  Customers and prospective can enter multiple times by simply interacting with C Spire in a variety of ways, including online, in stores and through social media like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.  So far, participants have earned entries through C Spire’s website, Facebook, Twitter, using Scout and viewing C Spire’s online advertising.


“This sweepstakes program not only gives current and prospective customers the chance to win and create a trip of a lifetime, but it also drives home C Spire’s mission to provide a personalized wireless experience that is uniquely designed for each individual customer,” Hankins said.
